One of the biggest problems about packing for a Disney vacation is how difficult is is to dress for the parks. It’s hot, it rains, you walk a lot. For the majority of visitors, these are not conditions they deal with on a daily basis. Here’s what I find comfortable for theme park touring and why.
- Headgear:: Whether its ears, an ear hat, or a plain ol hat, head gear is handy to have to keep hair out of your face. I also pack a baseball hat for the sunny days to keep the sun out of my eyes and off my face.
- Celebration button:: Disney vacation are all about celebrations. Wear the button to let others know! All the cast members want to make sure you’re having the greatest celebration possible.
- Crossbody Bag:: I see seasoned vets carrying all kinds of bags, but I recommend a crossbody because you can access the bag with two hands while still walking instead of having to stop or pause to use one hand to hold while you dig in your tote for something.
- Extra Layer:: After May, when I wore a vest the entire time, I decided that was the way to go. I loved having all the extra pockets without sleeves and a thick layer making me super hot. I highly recommend bringing one also as a rain protectant.
- Flowy Bottoms:: I endorse wearing skirts in the parks– with compression shorts underneath. I’m not comfortable wearing leggings or compression capris without a covering them up so cute cotton skirts work for me. I also pack chino shorts for a switch up, but I love my skirts and compression shorts underneath.
- Comfortable footwear:: There’s no one pair of shoes that I think works across the board for everyone. Though I love my Toms, I’ve also tried some other great shoes. I’m doing a write up on my Reef Bella Costas and my Birken Karios when I get home. Take the shoes you find most comfortable at home. Please don’t ever try new shoes at Disney!
